TERMS AND CONDITIONS Important, please read
It is well known that there is a connection between acute hyperventilation and anxiety states and symptoms. However, what is less recognised is that “overbreathing” is often present in a chronic and hidden form. Overbreathing creates on a day to day basis a fundamental derangement in physiology and may underlie a loss of resilience, a failure to respond to therapeutic intervention, and an experience of anxiety, dizziness or discomfort during therapies involving breath work. It is often an underlying factor in respiratory and sleep disorders.
Breathing retraining helps restore a physiologically normal breathing pattern during rest, sleep and exercise, and when under stress. Improving and restoring normal breathing patterns balances blood and brain chemistry, enables optimal oxygenation and promotes the parasympathetic state, providing relief from symptoms related to chronic overbreathing and sympathetic dominance. Acute and immediate relief as well as long term prevention is achieved through breathing retraining. Better breathing skills can augment the practice of many health and wellness techniques.
During this two-day workshop you will learn how to identify and assess dysfunctional breathing. Relevant physiology will be used to explain the physical and mental effects of dysfunctional breathing and how breathing retraining works to restore physiologic normal breathing. We will practice and discuss breathing exercises, posture adjustment exercises, and techniques and strategies to improve and stabilise breathing for immediate and long-term benefits.
This highly experiential and content-rich training features lectures, experiential exercises, discussions, and question and answer periods. Participants will experience first-hand the practice and application of better breathing into rest, physical activity, speech and sleep over the two days. Seven cases studies will illustrate the application and results of breathing retraining in anxiety disorders. There will be sessions devoted to the application of physiologically normal breathing into breath work in psychological therapy, yoga, Pilates, pulmonary rehabilitation, pain management and meditation.
Psychologists, counsellors, social workers, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals.
